A hugely important part of remaining compliant with Health and Safety Regulations is to constantly monitor and update your assessments and policy to keep up with changes in the law and in your business, and you can do this with a health and safety audit.
A periodic health and safety audit can help you identify any areas of improvement or any adjustments that need to be made in keeping with new Health and Safety Regulations or any business growth or changes.

What is a Health and Safety Audit?
A health and safety audit is an efficient, independent and documented assessment of the existing health and safety systems and processes at a business. This is measured against regulated criteria to make sure health and safety standards are being upheld to a legal minimum. Organisations should have a management system in place to ensure safety processes continue to be maintained.
Our professional Health and Safety Consultants can visit your premises and carry out a comprehensive audit and assess your current health and safety procedures making suggestions for improvement as and when required.
This will help make sure that you are always compliant with the law and that your policy and assessments don’t become outdated or non-compliant which many be the case if you have not carried out an order in over a year.
Your health and safety audit should be tailored to the industry you work in as businesses will all have different areas to consider such as onsite visitors, young people or machines.
What do our Health and Safety Audits involve?
We provide all of our clients with a dedicated health and safety consultant which is decided upon based on the industry and business location.
The consultant will then arrange an onsite visit in order to meet you with the appropriate people, walk around the premises and read through any current documentation as part of the health and safety audit.
After a thorough day onsite, your consultant will then put together a report which will focus on key areas within the business that need to be looked at and suggest improvements which we are more than happy to help put into place.
For example, if your health and safety consultant notices that your first aid kit needs restocking then we can point you in the direction of an equipment provider (with a discount code) or if we think there is a lack of understanding when it comes to manual handling then we can provide some training.
Our health and safety audits include:
- Onsite visit from your dedicated health and safety consultant
- Completion of your onsite audit and review of relevant paperwork
- A bespoke report summarising the significant findings and any remedial actions or recommendations required
- Follow up advice if required
- Regular health and safety legislation updates via our monthly electronic newsletter
